  2. Update the JavaScript Ewa Namespace API

    Enhance the JavaScript Excel Web Access Ewa Namespace API (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee589018.aspx) so it has more of the features that the newer Office Excel Add-in JavaScript API (Office.js) has (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee589018.aspx), including cell formatting and ability to submit API calls in batches.
    OR simply replace Ewa with the Excel Add-in API, but continue to allow embedding of Excel Online on public websites (Office Add-ins don't allow this without Office Store).

  3. Provide a link to return to the SharePoint library the file was opened from.

    When opened from a SharePoint library users don't know how to get back to the library. Sure, the back button works but a bit of navigation is nice.

  5. I would love to have the survey itself to have a option of using a spreadsheet because i require multiple types of information to beverified

    If you could allow a spreadsheet option for the survey form it would allow a limitless range of data types that could be quickly validated by a recipient

  6. Add the capability to impose logic on Excel Survey questions.

    I love that surveys can be created in Excel online. I would use this almost daily if I could format the question logic in the same way that Google Forms allows. The ability to add labels and separate pages is also really necessary in order to make sophisticated surveys that collect complex information.

  7. Split view

    It'd be really nice to be able to enable split view while working on my docs online. This way I'll be able to view two parts of the work sheet at one time.

  9. entering data, should be able to tab, tab, tab, enter -- enter should take me back to the row down from where I started.

    category would be 'data entry' -- makes it easier to keep a good workflow going.

  11. Too easy to lose an "un-posted" comment if you accidentally click away.

    In Excel Online, you can right-click Insert Comment - the pane on right appears. You enter your comment only to accidentally click to say another cell and you lose the comment (as Post was not clicked). Maybe some sort of warning would be good?
